    Never bring a knife to a...candy cane fight?

    I wasn't sure if this belonged in 'G,B&U' or 'Humor', so I'll start it here, and feel free to relocate if needed:

    Man uses candy cane to subdue attacker with knife

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A man using a candy cane lawn ornament fended off a knife-wielding neighbor who had been attacking holiday guests at a Sacramento home. Police spokesman Sgt. Norm Leong said the man used the two-foot-tall plastic ornament to subdue the attacker until officers arrived.

    He said the 49-year-old suspect became intoxicated, went over to a neighbor's home on Thanksgiving and began waving a kitchen knife at people gathered on the lawn.

    He cut several peoples' clothing before one of them decided to fight back.

    Police said the man with the knife was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. The guest who took up the candy cane was not arrested because police determined he acted in self-defense.

    But the question is: Did he have a license for that candy cane?
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    Of course not! It was California. I hadn't thought about it, but there's likely to be a suit against him...illegal use of a confection in an aggressive manner?

    Ban the candycanes before somebody gets killed!
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Good thing that cane wasn't an "assault candy cane with banned peppermint stripes."

    Well, at least the argument can be made that it wasn't a "conceal carry" candycane!!
